Well shame on you and your organization.
I would hope that if I had such a tape, I’d have the courage and fortitude to bring it to the proper authorities. And I’d go with a reporter and a recording crew. (Supposedly you guys have those.) And, let the “proper authority” explain to the camera why nothing could be done. Argh! We’ve become a nation of sheep. You could have take that crew from the office of the “proper authority” over to SU and gone door to door asking for a comment. AND put their “no comments” on Sports Center every half hour.
Sports is treasured because it’s supposed to build character. You’ve demonstrated that’s a flawed view. It’s done nothing for you and your organization.
